I am now a published author, thanks to Dr. Baum's expertise. What an insightful and patient editor. Dr, Al pushed me beyond my comfort zone. He pushed me from a dreamer to a now published author. I will forever be indebted to Dr. AL. …Blessed U. Sikhosana

Alwin is an amazing editor! I will use him every book I publish ❤️ He edits, motivates and gives phenomenal feedback!! He also gave me criticism on my novel and explained why I shouldn’t use certain words or certain events in my book! Alwin emailed me weekly and made sure I stayed on track! Thank you soooooo much ❤️

An incredibly prolific writer, has a way with words that'll make my book look like the discovery of gold. I'm very excited to get this project started with this professor, he's an exceptional writer and I see no reason why he isn't the perfect fit to write my poetry book synopsis.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My standard fee is $45/hour for writing, editing, and proofreading services. That fee is negotiable, depending on the nature of the project and the financial situation of the client.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    After an initial contact from the customer, I will try to respond within a few hours. No fee will be charged until we agree on terms for compensation and actually begin work on the project. I prefer to work together online, but I am available for personal meeting within 50 miles of my home in Long Beach, CA.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature and nearly 50 years of experience teaching, researching, writing, and editing academic books, articles, conference papers, theses and dissertations. I have experience also ghostwriting, editing, and proofreading fictional and autobiographical manuscripts as well as poetry.
